Nylons and Midriffs: The Business of Wrestling (WrestleMania Review, 2020)

The oddest WrestleMania in history has come and gone, folks. And well, with all due respect to AEW, I think the historic nature of WrestleMania this year requires me to focus on it exclusively this week. Still, I will give some general thoughts on AEW at the end of this post. All in all, I … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: The Business of Wrestling (WrestleMania Review, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: The Syndrome (March 11, 2020)

If you’re a long time wrestling fan like me, you know how this time of year feels when it comes around. While it infamously has no off-season, wrestling — when viewed as a cyclical sport — is now entering playoff season. We’re rounding third base into home, and the payoff for months of rivalry and … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: The Syndrome (March 11, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Back in My Day (February 26, 2020)

Good day, wrestling fans! I’m back here on your tiny screens to describe how the scenery is looking on the Road to WrestleMania so far. NXT Takeover: Portland has passed, and AEW Revolution is around the corner as well. And in the midst of these events, we’ve been bearing witness to some awesome women’s wrestling, … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Back in My Day (February 26, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Go Fix Your Braid (February 12, 2020)

Happy 2020 wrestling fans! It’s good to be back here with you all, hashing out what we love (and hate) about women’s wrestling in WWE and AEW. We have a lot of ground to cover so far this year, starting with the Royal Rumble and its aftermath. Because I see the new year as a … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Go Fix Your Braid (February 12, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Best of Both Worlds? (July 2, 2019)

Two weeks have passed, good wrestling fans, and I am still bored. I feel that every week I watch the WWE product, I sink deeper into an abyss of grey. I don’t feel any investment in the women’s storylines, but this is mostly because, as always, WWE is failing to create women’s stories outside of … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Best of Both Worlds? (July 2, 2019)

Nylons and Midriffs: Brand New? (June 17, 2019)

I think all WWE fans can agree that the product is stale and stagnant as far as storytelling currently. With exception of the bright humor of the 24/7 title shenanigans, I can find little, if any, positive things happening on RAW and Smackdown at the moment. On paper, the main event and mid-card titles for … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Brand New? (June 17, 2019)

Nylons and Midriffs: Cards on the Table (June 3, 2019)

It’s time to lay it out, friends. This week, we’re taking a step back for once to consider the women’s and larger wrestling scenes at large. Because it would be nearly impossible not to in my opinion, we’ll unpack the implications of AEW as a startup company — what the brand’s existence may mean for … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Cards on the Table (June 3, 2019)

Nylons and Midriffs: Checks and Championships (May 22, 2019)

I’ll be honest with you all. My interest in the WWE product has dipped drastically since WrestleMania. As we all know, we were heralded into a “new era” several months ago, with promises of new matchups and roster changes sure to revitalize a bland product. We got this for a hot minute but, as expected, … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Checks and Championships (May 22, 2019)

Nylons and Midriffs: Fastlane, or Roadblock? (March 11, 2018)

Life comes at you fast, wrestling fans, hence why we are less than one month away from the show of shows, WrestleMania. As Fastlane was last night, and it’s been a few weeks since we’ve discussed what’s been going on with the women, I think we should just dive right in. Lord knows we have … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Fastlane, or Roadblock? (March 11, 2018)

Nylons and Midriffs: Between a Chamber and a Hard Place (February 18, 2019)

The first stop on the Road to WrestleMania is behind us, and as expected, we’re left with more questions than answers leading up to the show of shows. In this post, I will revisit how the women’s division has developed thus far this year, as well as run down the hills and valleys of last … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Between a Chamber and a Hard Place (February 18, 2019)
